Water fountain
Spelsbury is a small village on the road between Chipping Norton and Charlbury. By the side of the road there is a large canopied water fountain, of honey coloured stone, built in memory of Constantine Augustus Dillon.

Many of the eminent residents of Ditchley Park, which also served as a weekend retreat for Winston Churchill during the early years of the Second World War, are buried in the church at Spelsbury. The memorial include one to John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester, friend of Charles II and famous for his libertine lifestyle and bawdy verses.
